    Gotta love the price breaks. FYI...Lamictal is available in generic currently, 25mg only. More pills to take, but saves us $$$ a month.

    I'd be happy to see Pulmnicort generic. Makes up for the formulary I picked up today for easy child's itchy scalp. 1 ounce 2.5% topical hydrocortisone solution cost me $40. There's gotta be a cheaper way...

    Duragesic (fentanyl) has been in generic for a while. So has Lotrel. Not sure we take any of the others, but always glad to see more medications in generics - we NEED our medications!!

    Thanks for posting this

    How much does the generic Lamictal save you? husband and difficult child both take it, between the two of them we go thru 300mg/day. That would be a lot of 25mg pills.

    Our copay for generic Lamictal is $10. Yes, she has to take more pills a day but it saves us $50 a month & she takes pills just fine in applesauce. It's worth checking in to even if you pay outright, may save you some $$$:D
